The Amazing Amani Affairs
When you think about planning such a special day in your lives, you want to align yourself with people that give their all to bring your vision to life. Amani Affairs went above and beyond to ensure our micro-wedding was MEGA-SPECIAL. The thought of having a wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic was challenging enough, but we had nothing to worry about with Amani Affairs leading the way. Jihan listens, takes notes and makes sure to provide you with the professional guidance needed to make your dreams a reality. The attention to detail from Amani Affairs is special. Our vendors made numerous comments about Jihan’s professionalism and that her run of show on the day of the event was the most organized they had ever seen. We absolutely plan to use Amani Affairs for future events.
If you’re in need of a Wedding Planner, we advise you to look no further. You have found the one.Sent on 09/26/2020

Working with Amani affairs for a recent anniversary party was a total delight! Jihan knew exactly what she wanted and was organized to the minute with details that we needed in order to provide the most beautiful and appropriate florals. I would highly recommend Amani Affairs for weddings, rehearsal dinners, anniversary parties and all other events! June Sweeny, Beautiful Flowers by June
